A new game inspired by Mega Man has recently hit Kickstarter, and is already close to reaching its goal.
More specifically, the game is called “Gigabuster,” and is described as an “action platformer inspired by Mega Man Zero and Mega Man X, focusing on fluid movement and combat.” With 26 days left in the campaign, $3,896 of the $5,000 goal has already been pledged.
The target platform is Steam on Windows, Mac, and Linux, but if they somehow manage to raise a lofty $50,000 goal, then the Nintendo Switch will be possible as well. “Because the game is made with Construct 2,” the Kickstarter explains, “it can't be exported to the Switch. But, if the stretch goal is met we will be able to get a port done. If not it will depend on the success of the PC version.”
They go on to note that “The base amount for the campaign goes mostly towards music and sound effects. While the base goal won't fund 100% of the music cost, I'll be funding the difference myself. Anything above that will go towards potential porting costs.”
If you’d like to add it to your Steam wish list, there’s already a link for you to do so.
Still not convinced? If playing is believing, then you’re in luck, as there is a playable demo available for you to try out on Game Jolt.
